Could be a fun game with a bunch of backups playing.
The Gator Bowl has had 20+ ranked teams play since 2000. The Music City Bowl, Iowa is the 6th.It is better than the Taxslayer, but not by much.
It's in Jacksonville, FLThe Gator Bowl has had 20+ ranked teams play since 2000. The Music City Bowl, Iowa is the 6th.
Dec 30th at 2:30 compared to Gator Bowl historically being on the 1st or 2nd.
I agree they are similar in order of picking, but Gator Bowl has history.
To the national media, there is only the playoffs. All else is just filler for ESPN programmingLeaving aside personal travel, there are three tiers of bowls:
within tiers it’s just about the opponent. The citrus has better history, but if Iowa somehow landed in the Mayo Bowl against a top 10 Clemson team that would clearly be great.
Could not find the Jan 1 reference but this is similar...Not saying that you are wrong, but that is fucking insane. Unless of course the TaxSlayer bowl is a New Years Day Bowl!!! that Missouri turned down.
Mizzou also considered the Outback and Gator bowls, both Jan. 2 games in Florida, but favored the Music City so that more players’ families could attend the game. Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz said playing the earlier bowl also affords the players a chance to return to their hometowns for Christmas and New Year’s.
Did you see who is playing in the Outback Bowl? 4-5 Ole' MissOutback and Gator bowls? They are a 0.500 team through 10 games
Parent of a player told me same last night. It wasn't like some badge of honor, but maybe hoping some fans would show up on their side.On the news down here in Mizzou country they stated the Tigers turned down a New Year’s Day bowl to stay closer to home. Did Iowa do the same or simply get hosed?
